Loc Stovi - 7 24mm's?

Hey folks-

Does anyone out there own a LOC Stovi? It looks like the aft section
consists of 7 24mm tubes...is this correct?

Thanks!

Yes, and no.
The original used a 24mm MMT, the new kits have the option of replacing the
MMT with 29mm, with the recommended construction revision of slicing a small
section out of the other 6 24mm tubes to accommodate the 29mm. On mine I
equally glued the 24mm to the outside of the 29mm, added a small paper
"seal" to bridge the small gap between the 24mm tubes, and epoxied and
filled, then sanded the small over hang of the 24mm tubes to the top shroud.
This modification leaves me open to use 1 29mm and 6 24mm motors should I
chose to do so.

happy Flying!

Sort of.  If you build it according to the directions the tubes are not
usable for motors, since you trim them to fit inside of the upper tube
ane hug the central tube.  If, however, you cut some new fins to fit
between the tubes and leave them intact, and cut the *top* outer edge of
them to slide the upper BT over them...

oops...forgot to mention that the lower section is either 6-24mm +
1-29mm or 7-24mm tubes (depending on if you get the 29mm option).
